Ah- just realised that the DOTH will be the weekend after the fort william marathon, whih I've entered- not going to do a hilly trail marathon, then the DOTH the following weekend...................perhaps next year?
................goes off to see when the entry frenzy is due.
Am down for the fling- is it too much in the one year?
I will never do the full WHW ( repeat after me - I will never even thing of attmepting full WHW)................I was reading about 100 mile races the other day, I'm not sure I'm cut out to go much beyong 50miles/ 12 hours.
Neil- Don't know whether you are anywhere near scotland, or on facebook, but if you are- try looking at the fling page- there are a few recce runs planned already.
How's it going?
I'm doing 4 weeks off running after my last race, just maintaining fitness with spinning etc, and started hill training with a brisk walk up the local hilss last week- ouch - DOMS of the gluts!. And got the HR up to 160 just with walking up the hill!. Brings it home that a lot of hill walking practice will be vital.
I found that setting a beep was annoying, and I thinkk it was bad for the battery, I use a duracell rechrger to top up my Garmin mid- race ( it'sa forrunner 405, I think)- not all of them still work whilst recharging, but mine does.
It would be good to have an inaudible alert to switch- perhap vibration, rather than a beep, but I can't figure out how to do it.
